He thinks he’s leading them; but a man he befriends and immediately betrays knows better. The people have become a mob. The black leader of a church and a white newspaper editor soon feel its wrath.

Note: need full credits. They are not on the DVD cover or at the end of the film online. Not sure if they are on the DVD but will look into it. Characters played by blacks in the film; Uncle Roy, Albert, Joey Greene (Charles Barnes), Mr and Mrs Greene and The Pastor.

Also, IMDB lists the Charles Barnes in this film as the same one that appears as Moose Wagner in “Saturday’s Hero“, but they are not the same person, I didn’t see any black people in “Saturday’s Hero“.
